I also completed a piece for Inspirations 11 X 11 Competition:
Last June, I took a Zentangle course through EGA. I really enjoyed it. It took patterns from Zentangles and added paint and embroidery. I have been working on a creative journal where this has been my focus - one zentangle a week. I have recently been making them for some challenges.

I created two ATCs for an exchange with Virtual Threads - the online cyber guild through EAC
and this little project

Hopefully Spring will surface soon. I love the longer days...Spring must be close
